Joseph Gary Lins

February 14, 1956- September 25, 2015

It is with great sadness that the Lins family announces the passing of Joe.

Joseph Gary Lins, of Salmo, BC, passed away suddenly in his home on Friday, September 25. Joe is survived in loving memories of family- his children Charlene (Ron) Weir of Fruitvale BC, Errol Lins of Calgary AB, and Marty (Joline) Lins of Calgary AB. He has one grandchild, Jace Lins of Calgary AB, whom he dreamed of teaching the art of fishing to. Joe is also survived in the love of his siblings, whom he was very close to, Ken Lins of Salmo BC, Valerie Lins (Flagel) of Castlegar BC, Cathleen Lins of Salmo BC, Sandra (John) Harmsma of Salmo BC, and Calvin (Jennifer) Lins of Salmo BC. He had many nieces and nephews, as well as great nieces and nephews, who were very special to him, and we’re all enthralled by his singing his version of a favourite song “Little Charlotte Johnson”. Joe will be remembered fondly by his many cousins, aunts, uncles, and his many, many friends. His outgoing, happy & friendly personality made him a favourite among all.

Joe Lins is pre deceased by his father Allan Earnest Lins, his mother Yvonne Thelma Irene Lins, his brother Gordon Daniel Lins, and his brother in law Terrance (Beaver) Henry Flagel.

Joe was well known for his love for his family and his second love – music. “Thin, fat, big or small, Joe, he loved them all- Guitars & Beer”

Anyone wishing to remember him and share in Celebrating his Life, is welcome to join the family on Saturday, October 3, 2015 at 1:00 PM at his brothers home – 405 Tamarac Avenue, Salmo BC.
